CJ Spiller's Player ProfileIf you were to clone former running back great Marshall Faulk, you'd get Spiller--all the way down to the jersey number. While the former number 28 paved a path to Canton with his unrivaled versatility, the latter number 28 will soon be cashing lucrative paychecks in the pros thanks to the same dual-threat distinction. Spiller has a great burst, sub-4.4 speed in the 40, and incredible "make-you-miss" ability. He can get to and around the corner, and is almost unstoppable once he reaches the secondary. He's also an underrated between-the-tackles runner, due in part to the immense shadow cast by his effectiveness in space. Additionally, he's as good a receiver as a running back can be, and he's even established himself as one of college football's finest kickoff return men.
In short, Spiller is arguably the most electrifying player in college football, regardless of division, and a first-round lock for next April's draft. He could even sneak into the top 10, depending on what team is picking where, what that team's needs are, how highly regarded he is by that franchise, and so on. No matter what, though, he'll immediately make a mark--if only as a returner--on the NFL stage.
